it, you know it when you see it. last night bill o'reilly booked laura ingraham on his show and set about to prove there's no feud. the segment began badly with laura saying first of all there is a feud. >> well, number one, i would say, bill, there is a feud. i mean, i think you and limbaugh, you are both friends of mine, so i'm in this position, i think when you said they have to do more than bible thump, i don't think you really needed to say that. >> okay. now watch bill o'reilly prove there's no feud. >> there's no feud between me and limbaugh. i don't talk to limbaugh. i never said anything about limbaugh on this program. >> all right then. that proves it. there's no feud with limbaugh. i don't talk to limbaugh. that sounds like no feud at all, of course. and for the rest of the interview o'reilly argued with laura ingraham about bible thumping. here is where i find myself completely comfortably in full agreement with mr. bill o'reilly. >> why did you use the word thump? why did you use the word thump? >> that's the way you get it across. there are bible thumpers, all they do
or particularly polarizing issues, but because i believe in it. i believe that laura's law outpatient treatment is a tool among many tools that we have in the mental health system to try to engage people in a recovery based way. the foundation of laura's law is a multidisciplinary team trying to engage people, trying to give them as much say in the treatment plan as they are willing to provide and when you read the description in nevada county that has it fully implemented. when you meet the people who work they are, they believe in the same things that mr. vega was mentioning, love kindness, i think that's why we all do this work but there are individuals like my mother, maybe like his son who need a little bit of extra help. i think that sometimes oftentimes clients see judges differently than they see their doctors. they are more line listening to judges than their doctors and than can be a very effective push into treatment, and that sometimes not pushing them in that way prevents them from getting into treatment in the beginning. what i found is that that is the first step to recovery. onc
